Fresh basil pesto

pesto-2

Somehow, never in my life, in all my years of cooking pasta, I’ve never made fresh basil pesto before. Until now, that is.

The major impetus for this is the fact that I’m finally living in a place where we are able to grow enough basil to get truly fresh basil from the garden, along with home-grown garlic!

We often eat pasta with pesto, but pasta with fresh pesto is so much better, and hardly takes any extra time if you have ingredients handy. I used thisĀ recipe from two greedy italians.
